As a person with a disability who has travelled widely, there is no greater frustration then arriving at a destination only to find a lack of wheelchair access. For example, you can’t get from the airport to the train terminal or you find that there is no elevator from an overpass to street level.
This is not a detailed ‘access guide’ but more of a wheelchair access introduction to a few cities:

Cairns Wheelchair Access is fairly good for the disabled tourist. It does not have the cobblestone and heritage buildings that are the hallmark of so many European destinations. as a result the vast majority of the built environment in this pacific rim city has been constructed over the last one hundred years.
Cairns is a tropical city. People who have disabilities that affect their capacity to control their temperature would be best advised not to visit during the November to March period. Rising temperatures during this period combined with increases due to climate change make it hard to leave an air conditioned hotel.
These links will help you in planning your trip to Cairns.
Cairns Regional Council’s Access for All Directory has a comprehensive list of accessible accommodation, services and facilities. They hope it will make planning your trip to our region less stressful and more enjoyable.
For more information on Cairns Wheelchair Access and to plan your holiday to Tropical North Queensland, visit the official tourism website for Cairns and Great Barrier Reef. You can email the Cairns
and Tropical North Visitor Information Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone them on (07) 4051 3588.
There are a great range of restaurants, shopping and level walkways to explore. Tours to the Great Barrier Reef and islands also depart from Cairns.
Cairns is level but if you are using a wheelchair as your main mode of transport I would suggest trying to book accommodation no further than 3 blocks back from the Esplanade. This will mean you are within a comfortable walk/wheel to some of the local attractions.
Amazon seemed the logical place to search for an Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation), Black and I found one without delay.
One of my friends has described me as an ‘early adopter’ but I am only just discovering Amazon and the world of online shopping now.
Amazon is is the fourth most valuable publicly traded company in the world behind Apple, Alphabet and Microsoft.
Online shopping is sure to be the future with all the problems and advantages that brings.
Hopefully my Amazon Echo Dot will make it before Christmas and we will see how it goes.

Access features are so great for people with disabilities. I would kill (well not really) for a few hundred $$$ to spend here!

Comments by Rob Pyne:
It has been great to watch the development of Mt Sheridan Plaza into what I believe will be not only a successful shopping centre but also a valuable community meeting place.
As part of the Shier council I had the opportunity to support the final Development Approval for the Plaza and, as a Councillor on the Manning Council, I look forward to attending the opening.
Some shoppiong centres look as if they have been ‘plunked’ into an existying commercial or residential area with little forethought. This is definitely not the case with Mt Sheridan Plaza.
Considerable planning has gone to deliver a facility that does not detract from the amenity of nearby residents. Planners have also considered at length the impact of traffic movements and pedestrian and cycle access to the Plaza and I am confident upon the opening everything will come together to create a great outcome for the owner, tenants and, of course, the customer!
K-Mart almost finished @ Mt Sheridan Plaza!
